*glisten) HIVE  is a project that aggregates, visualizes and sonifies Twitter communications about animals. The project offers textual representations of empathy, as a form of ecological relating. The Tweets selected for the project are mapped into the installation as animated text mimicking social-insect swarming patterns. The animations are created using Max/MSP software that allow for regular Tweet updates to the swarms' non-repeating organically moving patterns. Visitors can contribute Tweets to the swarm via mobile devices. The soundscape is produced using granular synthesis and generative techniques to create a soundscape of many voices.
